CSS Alumni January 29 Blog Hop

Welcome to the GKD's Center Stage Spotlight Alumni Design Team's Blog Hop...you should have come from the super talented blog of
Kay Simmons
.  If not, you can always start at the beginning over at STV.
This hop we are using this sketch provided by Melissa Cash.

it's a very basic sketch and I loved working with it....using the GKD Stamp Set Spring Mix , here's my card

I did the inside of this one because I have a special friend this is going to....
Used GKD's cardstock Creme de Menthe and stash dp, Memento Grape ink, nesties, cb folder, MS butterfly punch and stash ribbon.

Now head over to Lori's wonderful blog - you know she has a beauty waiting!!

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (February 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Now how cool is that!!! so get hopping and enjoy.
blessings everyone - hope life is going well (-:
